What is Shiatsu Massage? By Deborah Howcroft-Miles of Zen Chi Therapies

‘Shiatsu is not about the amount of pressure it takes. It is all about the connection. Touch is perhaps the most powerful tool in Shiatsu we have!’

Shiatsu is a form of Japanese touch therapy with a history going back to ancient Chinese medicine.  The word Shiatsu means “finger-pressing”.  Shiatsu is a beautiful art of acupressure using the principles of Ki extension to bring the body back into balance.   Working along lines or meridians of the body, a Shiatsu treatment will not only relax you, it can support healing the body by alleviating pain, relieving the symptoms of numerous medical conditions, support a better night’s sleep and help you move with ease again.

Often Shiatsu is thought as a complimentary treatment however its effects is more than complimentary.  Shiatsu is a standalone treatment that gets to the root of the problem. 

Shiatsu is a body work that follows the energetic patterns through the physical symptoms the body presents.   Shiatsu is “listening” to the requirements of the client’s body and making accommodation to feel into that space and move with your energy to facilitate natural healing within.   This explains why someone might have a shoulder problem, but the leg is being treated.  The body is a beautiful circuitry of not just muscle, blood, and fluid but also of energy.  It is all connected.  Mind leads body, body leads mind.  Working or even neglecting either aspects has a profound effect on the emotional and energetic aspects of self.  Shiatsu is a tool for tapping into and giving you the opportunity to heal all parts of the self.
